Tolerance begins with better education...,
This review is from: Destiny Disrupted: A History of the World Through Islamic Eyes (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My personal view is that we could all get along much better if we didn't resort to stereotyping and assumption.
While this is not an exhaustive and detailed tome on the History of Islam, it is presented in a format that can be easily digested by those interested in learning more as well as those trying to understand a different culture to that of the West.
The narrative style is pleasant but not dumbed down and this makes it a very interesting read.
I was aware of some of the history through TV programs with Jim Al Khalili and others. This helps to fill in the gaps and I try to educate others who make off-handed and inaccurate comments.
This book serves to remove the blinkers from the eyes of those who are self-opinionated on Islam.
We are all just human beings inhabiting the same planet - the extremists exist on all sides. We should not be coloured by the bitter lies of others.
